    1. Overall a very informative book. Focused more on the day to day struggles rather than an discussion of overall policy. Specific issues were discussed as they related to collected letters/documents detailing how a person/family was impacted. The book has an overall negative view of non-soldier northerners, but most of the subject material was from southern families' letters, so not too surprising.

    2. I received this book as a Christmas Gift I was looking forward to reading it. However once I started reading it I could not put it down and at some points it even made me mad at the way the Southern population ( not the soldiers that fought but the civilans that were just trying to survive) were being treated. And it just got worse after the assassination of President Lincoln. I would recommend this book to all that love History or the Civil War in general.

    3. This book touches on a lesser known aspect of Civil War History but after reading Hellstorm: The Death of Nazi Germany by the same author, this seems to fall a bit short. One message rings loud and clear. All things considered, americans are decent warriors.
